Embarking on a no-fly cruise?

Begin your cruise holiday in style and take away the hassle of rushing to the port on your day of embarkation, with a pre-cruise hotel stay. Or, relax at the end of your cruise with a post-cruise stay, while looking back at unforgettable memories and toasting to new-found friends.

Many of our suppliers include on-site car parking for the duration of your cruise - ensuring every part of your holiday runs as smoothly as possible. Whether you're cruising from the ports of Southampton, Dover or London Tilbury, we have highlighted options below - and of course, our dedicated Cruise Specialists are on hand with any queries or concerns you may have. 

Cruising from London Tilbury? Stay at The Park Inn by Radisson, Thurrock

Located just a short 10-minute drive from the Tilbury Cruise Terminal, The Park Inn by Radisson Thurrock, is the nearest hotel to the port. The elegant Georgian Manor House is set within six acres of lush, verdant gardens and features bright, air-conditioned rooms with tea and coffee making facilities. A good range of fresh, savoury fare is offered at The RBG Bar and Grill and the elegant Red Bar. 

Cruising from Southampton? Stay at the Holiday Inn, Winchester

Let the Holiday Inn Winchester help you start your cruise from Southampton in style.  The hotel is located just five minutes from Winchester city centre and we highly recommend taking the local bus to visit some of the area’s key historic attractions, or indulge in some last minute shopping in one of the fantastic boutiques.  Once at the hotel, you may wish to treat yourself to afternoon tea on the outdoor terrace, or dinner in the two AA Rosette award-winning Morn Hill Brasserie, which serves the best local produce that Hampshire has to offer. 

Our package includes: accommodation the night before your cruise, in one of the hotel’s air-conditioned, well-appointed bedrooms; parking for up to 28 days in the on-site car park; transfers to and from Southampton docks; and a full English buffet breakfast.

Cruising from Dover? Stay at the Marquis at Alkham

The Marquis at Alkham is a 5 star, 17th century restaurant with rooms, which has been lovingly restored. The hotel is located just five miles from the port of Dover and therefore offers you the perfect start (or finish) to your cruise. The much acclaimed restaurant boasts two AA Rosettes together with delicious, locally crafted menus, created by the new exemplary Head Chef, Stephen Piddock. Our exclusive rates even include a glass of sparkling wine as well as cookies in your room!
